That is 206.4298 Cubic meters and the following is kg/cu.m.

Sand, wet 1922
Sand, wet, packed 2082
Sand, dry 1602
Sand, loose 1442
Sand, rammed 1682
Sand, water filled 1922
Sand with Gravel, dry 1650
Sand with Gravel, wet 2020

dry sand 1602kg x 206.4298cu.m. = 330,700.558272399 kg = 364.5350 tons

Your question is meaningless unless we know what material you mean. Is it water, sand, mercury? For each substance the answer would be different.
